Will had a sleep over on Saturday, he had a couple of new hats, a sun hat like Grancha, and a helmet to go with his new bike. He could not decide which to wear.
In the end the helmet won out, but he does like to wear it backwards.
The 1st sock is finished,
it's a bit bigger than mine, but still fits on my shaper.
I decided to start these, again for my sister,
using yarn from my stash, the toes will be the bright pink colour.
Will woke at 6am on Sunday morning, so it was a long day for us, he played happily most of the morning inside, daddy came to collect him, but he wanted to show daddy his trike, so he got to play outside for almost an hour.
I am spending most of my time knitting, it is relaxing and socks do not get too big, which is good as Grace my cat is spending more time on my lap, she is not bothered with the yarn, so both of us get time together.
Today we are having a small family roast dinner, Will, mummy and daddy are coming, so loads of time outside, it's sunny here, but just a bit cooler.
We did not get any rain in the last couple of days, I am hoping the fore caste is correct for a couple of wet days later in the week.
I think this year we have been lucky enough to have nice weather at Easter and both of the May Bank Holidays. We are hoping we get another great summer, our garden will be the perfect place to spend most of the summer.
It's a bit strange as we do not have any big jobs on our list, we moved in here 10 years ago, did most of the inside in the first few months, kitchen and bathroom and had all the walls and ceiling plastered and finished with a solid wood floor. Hubby painted the hall stairs last year, and later in the summer he will paint the dining and sitting room, once the furniture is moved it's a simple job.
I love it now I can sit and watch my garden and not see anything I need to sort, it's never finished, there is always a space needing filling, at this time of year I'm watching to see what is growing back, I do have plants in the greenhouse almost ready to go out.
